At the Crossroads of Safety and Advancing Medical Device Technology

September 13, 2017
10:00am - 10:40am
Grand Ballroom

Medical device cybersecurity is evolving. Multiple community efforts are tackling the challenges facing secure clinical device operation, but unabating attacks and greater device network connectivity mean continued vigilance and agility are needed.

This session will characterize the evolving ecosystem, re-assess gaps and challenges, and outline current and emerging steps the FDA recommends manufacturers take to remain vigilant and continually address the cyber risks of marketed medical devices.

Additionally, attendees will also learn why it is so important for healthcare providers to apply NIST principles (identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover) to navigate the uncharted territory of evolving medical device risks.
